When Talbots reached out to partner together for Spring, I wrote them back immediately and said HECK YES! Do you remember when I partnered with them back in November? I initially accepted the post because my mom has always loved Talbots, and they gave me the green light for her to be in the post too! That was my first time to ever shop Talbots for myself, and I was super impressed.
Shooting the post was a blast because my mom and sister ended up both getting in on the fun, and we got to sneak in a quick lunch on the McKinney square after the pictures. My mom was of course THRILLED to get pictures of herself with her two girls, but I think she was equally excited to get a head to toe Talbots outfit (and she looked FABULOUS). MY MAMMA LOVES HER SOME TALBOTS. Click HERE to see the pictures and the post.
I’m excited to get my mom and possibly sister involved in future posts too (because it’s a 3 month deal), but today it’s all me! I’ve got one casual outfit and one work appropriate outfit, and I’m equally excited about both.
But before we get started today, you need to know that EVERYTHING is 30% OFF through tomorrow, so you definitely need to take advantage of the sale!
This first outfit is totally my vibe. A striped pullover, a military jacket, and pull on jeans? YES, PLEASE. I elevated it a bit with cognac driving moccasins, and I ended up loving the entire look.
The stripe pullover is my favorite kind of top. It’s a relaxed fit, IT’S NAVY STRIPES, and it feels a bit like a thin sweatshirt. I also love the coordinating navy bands on the hem and the cuffs. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
The top also has this zipper detailing on each side, which is a nice design element.
The earrings are a classic little hoop with a ball drop. I love that they are mixed metal, and I’m telling you, they will go with EVERYTHING.
You all know a military is something that I feel everybody needs in their closet. In addition to military green jackets, I also love jackets that also give a pop of collar. This golden jacket is such a great addition to my wardrobe. At 5’4″ I went with the Medium Petite. The petite sleeves were just a tad bit short on me, so I decided to cuff them and show off the striped top underneath.
The jeans are so cute. (And we’ll talk about the tote in a minute, but this picture shows how it’s lined with a cute striped fabric.)
And look! You just pull them on!
They are a really soft fabric, they aren’t too tight like lots of pull on jeans I’ve tried, and of course they are CRAZY comfortable. They are crafted from our revolutionary Sculpt Stretch fabric, with flattering compression properties that contour every curve.
For size reference, I’m 5’4″ and wearing a 4 Petite.
The cognac driving moccasins are comfy and totally classic. The insole is really cushy, and I like how the pointy toe and gold detailing dresses them up a bit. I think they look great with this casual outfit, but you’ll see in the next outfit that they are definitely nice enough to wear to work as well. I would recommend sizing down a 1/2 in the moccasins.
A great cognac tote is always a good idea. And I think a cognac tote pretty much begs for a bandana to be tied on a handle.
The green and white enamel bangles are so pretty wit their shiny finish and gold accents.
Yep, this outfit is totally me.
WORK APPROPRIATE OUTFIT
This next outfit will have you ready for the office, once you are given the go ahead to go back into the office that is.
First and foremost, I hear from all of you ladies that work in an office that a blouse with a sleeve or a light layer is necessary all year long. Apparently, corporate America likes to keep their offices ice cold!
This cardi is cardi perfection. It’s relaxed yet refined, and it’s a great fit. And this pink (“rosebud”) is absolutely beautiful, although it also comes in powder blue, light pink, and green.
For size reference, I’m wearing the petite small because I wanted it a little bit shorter than the regular sizing allowed.
The floral stripe blouse has figure flattering vertical stripes with a floral pattern in the stripes, and the split neck and gathered sleeves are so pretty and feminine. The pink and yellow colors in the floral pattern are easy to pull out, which is why I chose pink for the cardigan to highlight the colors.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the top.
The necklace is a pretty combination of gold, white, and various shades of blue beads. And it has a slide pull tie, so you can easily adjust the length.
The ankle pants are my perfect idea of what a work pant should be. They are crafted from a substantial, double-weave cotton and look very professional, while remaining comfortable. They’ve got a classic straight leg and a higher waistband for a more modern fit.
For size reference I got a 6P. I’m typically a 4, but I often size up in pants like this if I end up going with a petite.
Such a pretty Spring and Summer look!
I hope you enjoyed both looks today! I love both complete outfits, but I’m also looking forward to mixing and matching the pieces with the rest of my wardrobe.
A huge thank you to Talbots and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post.
